JCT Contracts and the impact of COVID-19

An emerging area of interest for architects is the significant impact COVID-19 is having upon construction contracts in Northern Ireland. 

Whilst many construction sites have been closed for a number of weeks, some have now re-opened and many more are due to re-open soon (albeit with social distancing etc).  In order to support members, RSUA has organised a seminar to look at the JCT contractual requirements in dealing with the coronavirus.  Note – RSUA is trialling recording of CPD events for members and this session will be recorded

Course Content

This seminar will consider and advise on:

  • Disruption to the Contract
  • Payment clauses
  • Extension of Time clauses
  • Termination clauses
  • The Relevant Events
  • The Relevant Matters
  • Time & Money? – Both or Neither
  • Notification
  • Assessing Extensions of Time
  • Assessing Loss and/or Expense
